  2. GOD HATES FAGS current position



The hate preacher who has created many storms over his GOD HATES FAGS campaign through his Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, USA is dying of ill health at 84 years of age. 

Fred Phelps had been excommunicated from the Christian sect which picketed the funeral of US soldiers holding up signs saying ' THANK GOD FOR IED's and THANK GOD FOR 911' and even ' THANK GOD FOR DEAD SOLDIERS' claiming the deaths were God's punnishment for Americas immorality and tolerance of homosexuality and abortion.

He is better known in gay circles for his GOD HATES FAGS campaign, even though one of his 13 children, ran away from home when he was just 18 ( now believed to be in his 50's ) and has lived in Canada promoting LGBT rights.  ( Bet that went down well with Daddy Dearest...)

Westboro Baptist, a small group made mostly of Phelps’ extended family, inspired a federal law and laws in numerous states limiting picketing at funerals. But in a major free-speech ruling in 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the church and its members couldn’t be sued for monetary damages for inflicting pain on grieving families under the First Amendment.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil-rights nonprofit group, has called Westboro Baptist Church a hate group.

Nate Phelps, an estranged son of Fred Phelps, also said in an email to The Topeka Capital-Journal that members of Westboro have voted Fred Phelps out of the church.

Nate Phelps, who broke away from the church 37 years ago, told the newspaper that church members became concerned after the vote that his father might harm himself and moved him out of the church, where he and his wife had lived for years. Fred Phelps was moved into a house, where he “basically stopped eating and drinking,” Nate Phelps said.

A Kansas gay rights group on Sunday urged the gay community to respect the privacy of the “notoriously anti-LGBT” pastor if his health is declining.

Phelps and the members of his church have “harassed” the grieving families of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Kansans and others, Thomas Witt, executive director of Equality Kansas, said in a prepared statement.

I watched a couple of TV documentaries on this man and the abuse and horrendous treatment screamed by him and his family at those bereaved and attending funerals was horrific and cruel and I am not unhappy that this man is dying at all.   Brainwashing his family members to be bigoted in this fashion is surely as wrong as teaching your children that murder is okay - or rape - and it is good to see that at least one of his children escaped and now works for the rights of the LGBT community.  Coming from the background and family he does,  it must have been hard.

I am always curious why some people make it such a campaign to go up against gay people as if we were an abomination and a sin from God even though the Bible DOES NOT STATE THIS AT ALL and there are more concerns in the Bible concernign straight sex than there ever are for gay sex and the word gay or even homosexual never existed in the original biblical texts - at all - no mention - zero - nada - and anyone claiming it does is a liar.  It dos statre that having sexual relations with any family member is an abomination and even eating crap, lobster, rabbit and pork are an abomination,  and yet they merrily ignore this while screaming about gays.    Limiting what you choose to believe - or not - in the Bible is not a belief structure,  it is a choice, and if you choose to read and follow only a part of anything,    then you will be wrong.  

If you lived your life acccording to the Harry Potter books but only read book one and three, then you would not have the whole picture.  If you decide that certain parts of the Bible are not meant for you and decide to ignore it, then you are limiting the truth - the whole truth and nothing but the truth ( acording to this massively edited book ) and this is not going to teach you a rounded and complete version of what it is trying to tell you.  

I doubt this man and his weird family will not be missed and I hope and pray this church of his - this evil and obnoxious disgrace for a religious belief structure, will now die as quickly as this old man will when he takes his last breath and passes into history - a part of history that need never be repeated.

GOOD NEWS:  This old bastard is now dead.  Not a great loss to humanity although I feel for his family who must now feel a great void...  although they will probably think it was the gays who killed him.... For many,  it will be a time of celebration that the old hate filled asshole is dead.

I am sure there are many who will hope he rots in hell

for what he has done.

and I am sure even God is digusted at this vile little man and what he has done in His / Her name.


As a spiritual man, I try and see the good in everyone, the love and the care we all hold inside.  Sadly there are a few people we meet that we do wonder who on God's Earth could possibly love them, care for them and want to befriend them,  and I am sure there were people who loved and adored Hitler,  as there are this Fred Phelps.  

Maybe he was a good Father - a caring man who did good work other than this campaign of hate and fear he presided over and the families of dead soldiers and gay men who had to face his bogotry at the funeral of their loved ones and had to cope with that at the worst time in their lives.  Maybe he meant well and was just trying to help the family see the light - the truth - or maybe he was suffering some kind of mental health problem that made him deranged and no one had the guts to stand up to him - and he just went from bad to worse.  

Maybe his biggest fear was that he really was gay and the fear turned him mad. There are many maybe's and many excuses to be made and I hope he finds some answers when he comes face to face with God and that S/He shows him the error of his ways and finds forgiveness from those he abused.
